Thrill Ride

My 10 year old and I watched this On Demand actually from Comcast and thought it was great. We have never heard of Danny and so it was a very entertaining story for us about a boy determined to reach his dreams and push himself to explore new challenges. He certainly did not have an easy childhood but I do not think it is anything that a child 11 or older could't watch. It isn't graphic. But it does unfortunately shed light on some less than stellar moments.
